When you’re ice fishing, choosing the right lures and jig strokes to match the mood of the fish and conditions at hand can mean the difference between enjoying banner catches or going home empty handed.

This week on an all-new episode of Lindy Legendary Fishing Tackle’s Fish Ed TV, host Jon Thelen offers tips on both fronts for walleyes and panfish.

In the show’s first segment, Jon takes a hard look at downsizing spoons to tempt tough-bite walleyes into biting.

It’s a timely topic, because on lakes across Lindy Land there are times when winter walleyes turn up their noses at classic presentations. Watch as Jon reveals how small spoons and a slow hand can add up to more fish on the ice.

As a follow-up, Jon shows how matching subtle jig strokes and drop speeds to the mood of finicky panfish can boost your catches into the stratosphere.

Catch all the action this Saturday, Dec. 19, at 8:30 a.m. Central on FOX Sports Wisconsin and FOX Sports North.
